Neil Simon based this play on his experience as a writer on the 1950s television comedy series Your Show Of Shows starring Sid Caesar. True to its origins, the script, especially in Act 1, is replete with one-liners and fast-paced dialogue between the seven comedy sketch writers as well as Max Prince, the show's star, along with the office secretary, Helen. The play reflects its setting: the impact on such production companies of the economic and political pressures of the era, not the least of which was the threatening menace to the arts of then-rampant McCarthy-ism.
Director Nick Fagan has gathered some of Adelaide’s most enthusiastic performers for this blasphemous black comedy which is in turn shocking and hysterical. It explores the oft-confusing notions of faith, morality, and our own human nature.
